Be honest and tell me if you have felt stress over a long period of time. If you have, very bad thing for you! Stress kills people. It makes you weak over longer periods and sabotage your sharpness and productivity. From my 17 years of martial arts and daily life of entrepreneurial Jedi mastery, I share my ways on how to strengthen your mind body and soul.
I tell a lot of people how I cultivate and sustain my physicality and mental agility. Because if I can affect how people succeed in life, the tips and methods I give WILL make an impact and advance your strength.
But first, why would you want to optimize yourself at all?
My 7 practical methods of optimization
First I want to describe one important point to you. Your life and my life will probably have totally different stories. Our past history, life purpose and karmic “red thread” through this life have exclusively diverse agendas.
So, I have unwillingly acquired something valuable
My childhood played out a lot of “shit happens”. Having 5 step-fathers, moving 32 times, living in a tent, mother drinking to her death and having to deal with it alone develops a special set of life and people skills.
Now, I have never complained. I have been fucking stubborn, having a warrior mindset and hustling through the valley-with-the-shadow of death.
Losing my beautiful girlfriend was the hardest part. Losing my mother was a tea-party compared to it.
I’m still not complaining, but I mention this to you. Because if you got some kind of the same history, good! Seriously. You’re developing more valuable life-skills as an advanced soul then life-surfers who mentally break down for nothing!
Don’t let life take you down. Stand tall and make a shift! Because shift happens. Follow the motion.
So, here’s my step by step for you.
1. Morning practice and body wake-up call
Every day I have to start with a short workout. Maybe I’m addicted, but it’s like my body vibrates and becomes the energizer bunny if I don’t start to move.
This is not something you have to do: but I do kick practice. Do something else.
Yeah, one of those sidekick-poses…
It’s a bodily habit of 17 years of training. I keep energizing music on, something positive. I zip at least one glass of water during this session since our bodies dry up during sleep. Don’t dry out your cells in your body, moisture them. Or you loose your power and over time get sick.
I do my push-ups, something you should do also. I also do push-ups on my head, legs straight up. Do this against your wall so you don’t fall over. Try balancing.
I end with stretching. Which is something you also should try as it is easy and pleasant. At least, do this one, because stretching also works on your chi. Ad positive music to it. Enjoy it, mindfully.
2. Brutal filtering av madness and unhealthy people
Filtering comes first! If you are like most people, which you probably are! They have a tendency to swallow ALL of it. Just like this:
- Watching the news, become hypnotized and (worst case) believe most of it
- Habitually and brutally browsing Facebook like a drone. Facebook is the worst of them now. Value your time better, don’t give 50% of your life to Mark Zuckerberg’s code of mass suggestion.
- Look at your social life differently. You probably need to filter out some friends, co-workers and maybe even family. Become a social engineer.
- Filter your environment. This is the places you go to and spend time at. Maybe you can pick out more inspiring and better feeling places. Go to a hotel lobby if you have to, act as a guest and read a book.
I made this shift many years ago. And it didn’t make me a shit-face either. I’m still a nice person to everybody. I just deliberately and elegantly phase out certain unhealthy and negative people.
3. Consuming inspirational and mind-boosting content
( an important one)
If you had consumed the type and amount of content in the forms of books, documentaries and other knowledge from my fringe research resources, your life would change, now, today.
After you have done your filtering and made it a norm, you got A LOT more capacity to consume GOOD stuff.
A good place to start is my 3 part blog series. Or the well-known book “Think and Grow Rich”. Seriously, it was published in 1937. LOL.
“If you don’t like, or can read that much, that’s fine. Listen to Think and Grow rich as an audiobook.”
If you don’t like, or can read that much, that’s fine. Listen to Think and Grow rich as an audiobook.
4. Meditate to reformat and optimize my brain
For many people, meditation is still a little scary and too much of a “spiritual” subject. That just confirms their limiting mindset. Did you know that researchers and scientist now know that meditation, in fact, re-shapes the brain and starts to connect new neuro-pathways?
- Watch a TED talk about your brain (link at the end)
- Start do meditation, your way. Make it a habit.
It’s the regular habit of doing the meditation that creates the difference. Not just one romantic night with some incense and a candlelight by yourself, trying it once.
5. Raising body vibration by eating live clean food
This is a must.
I have never JUST been living on junk food or eating dead diets. But I did improve a couple of years ago. I wanted to see the difference by choosing only clean and life food. I saw the light.
I mean, it’s obvious. I just hadn’t made it a habit. Now I do.
Seriously reader, change it. You WON’T be able to make the tips in this blog post a habit unless your body and brain get CLEAN energy!
Because decision making in your brain won’t work as it should.
I make smoothies of kale, spinach, celery, apple and banana. I create my own cereal, not using milk. Use almond milk instead. Cut out bread (wheat at least) and don’t drink calf milk. Try and see if you get any difference.
Milk, I just have to point out. You got breastfed as a little kid, which is good. But you are big now, why keep sucking milk? And from a COW?
6. Seeing reality as Energy
This is just a tip, and not a must-do. My world-view is probably pretty different than yours. But I see our existence in more of “energy”. And energy is vibration in different levels.
When you start to understand this, you will think differently about life. You will THINK different in general. Because your thoughts are energy.
7. Help others and be grateful
My last, more magical tip, is to spend time doing good for other people.
There is no list of special things you should do, just be open to this. Follow your intuition and let situations come to you.
About a couple of years ago I had to spend some time refocusing to figure out what my true passion was. It didn’t take long to discover that my 15 years as a Taekwon-Do trainer puts me in my “natural setting”.
Training, coaching and mentoring people by words are what I do best. And I get A LOT in return. It is felt in my body and my heart.
Our hearts are connected. Read the book “The Hearts Code”.
My guarantee for you change
I’m not going to announce a 30-day money back guarantee in these 7 steps. I don’t have to, because if you truly keep going from this moment on in your life by living, practicing and maintaining these 7 steps as part of your routine, you WILL change.
Like I said: In the moment of your decision, you already have changed your life. And by keeping it up, you reinforce the change manifest a new reality.
So, I have spoken. Namaste.
